Heavy Ion Stripping by Wrinkled Carbon Foils
We report on measurements performed at Argonne to study the properties of wrinkled foils produced by the technique that was first developed at Daresbury(1). Foil lifetimes and transmission properties were measured under exposure to a 3 MeV 84Kr beam at the Argonne Dynamitron accelerator, and to an 8 MeV 58Ni beam at the terminal of the Argonne FN tandem. Energy loss straggling was measured by the time-of-flight method utilizing the picosecond beam bunching system of the Argonne superconducting heavy-ion linear accelerator.
